Dep(art)ing Passengers

December 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018
4:30 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.

The Fort Smith Regional Airport, Fort Smith, Arkansas will feature Dep(art)ing Passengers, an exhibition of paintings by Charles K. Steiner. The paintings, installed at the central entrance of the passenger terminal, depict passengers waiting to board airplanes. Mr. Steiner is a member of the adjunct faculty of the Art Department, University of Arkansas-Fort Smith. The paintings derive from Steiner’s frequent and often last-minute airplane trips to oversee the care of a family member on the East Coast. To maintain his studio practice on such an unpredictable schedule, he filled his sketchbooks with drawings of his fellow passengers while waiting for departures in airports across the country. Dep(art)ing Passengers are paintings based on those drawings. Steiner adopted a loose style to capture the movement of people in airports— snacking, stretching, adjusting luggage, or just waiting for the gate agent to announce their flight. The paintings are for sale.

Admission: Parking: First 30 minutes free
